Reception Classes and Chinese New Year

February 2019

Our Reception Classes learnt some new art and drama skills recently after watching Chinese New year celebrations. They were inspired to make their own Chinese dragon, and to then perform their own Chinese dragon dance. They made fortune ‘cookies’ for their friends and finished off their own celebrations in style with a noodle party!
